It was therefore decided in the house that the CEC and BEC, Div.II, Amabala to bear the Court expenditure of Com M.C.Tiwatia sharing 50% each.
           
             The President directed Com N.Kumar, Member, Office Council(JCM) to make a visit to JCM office at Faridabad once in a month for organizational work.  He is also directed all the CEC/BEC leaders to stay one or more days at JCM office at Faridabad to attend their own members/office pending work, while coming to attend the meeting scheduled.

            The President thereafter requested the Secretary General to take up the agenda items for debate.

            Accordingly, the Secretary General narrated the agenda and the following agenda items were discussed and debated.

            Thereafter, the Secretary General conveyed thanks to Com Hanuman Singh Meena, Organising Secretary, Joint Council of CG Employees & Workers, Faridabad & the General Secretary of Residents Welfare Association, Faridabad, Com.Mahesh Pal Singh, Ex-President of Joint Council, Com Sidhraj Singh, President CPWD, MRM Karmachari Sangatan, Faridabad and Com K.M.Tripathi, Circle Secretary, Haryana RMS Employees, for their glorious involvement supporting during the Dharna held at Bhujal Bhavan, Faridabad on 2nd & 3rd December 2013 against the Unilateral, arbitrary and unlawful transfers of employees of Div.II, Ambala.

5.         Non supply of drilling/store materials such as Tents, Pipes, Bits, Mud etc.,

            A lengthy discussion was taken place.  All the members were expressed their views and felt that the authorities are intentionally not making any procurement action on tents, pipes, bits, mud and gravel etc.,    The CGWB is having very efficient procurement section right from Exploratory Tubewell Organization and CGWB is used to keep sufficient stock in their sub basecamps, but today’s situation is entirely different, if this scenario continues, the prestigious Engineering wing of Central Ground Water Board will shuts off soon.
All the CGWB funds are diverting to the private consultant (i.e) WAPCOS, which is also a question mark.

            Com N.Somaiah, Leader, Staff side, Deptt. Council(JCM), MoWR stated that a memorandum has given to the Honourable Minister of Water Resources in this regard.  He also pointed out that each and every year the Annual Action Plan/Field Season Programme (target) is reducing and authorities wants to sabotage the Engineering wing in full.  At the same time the authorities are earmarking that 2000 wells is to be drilled by private agencies for aquifer mapping, when already the Central Ground Water Board is having sufficient datas, then  what is the need to drill such number of wells. No basin wise study was done so far, except CGWB no department is available to do such kind of study in the country.

            The Secretary General stated that a letter will be addressed to all General Secretaries to explore the availability of stores such as tent, pipe, bit, mud and gravel etc., so that the consolidated demand/statement will be submitted to the Chairman, CGWB for initiation of centralized procurement action. Also, a resolution was passed in the house that within short time a strike notice will be given against poor attitude of the authorities towards drilling wing and to save the department from winding up.  An agenda item to that effect has been submitted to the meeting of Departmental Council(JCM), MoWR.

6.         Other points, if any

            It was proposed by Com S.S.Acharya, ASG that rotation policy of the Drivers among CGWB, Division and Region needs to be implemented on request of the individual if any.  While implementing the provision inter transfer of the substitute should be based on their longer stay as well the recommendations of the Branch Secretary of AICGWBEA.  He has also pointed out to fill-up the vacant posts in Ministerial Stream & Engineering Stream on promotional method without waiting finalization of the R/Rs in different cadre.

            Com A.Balasundaram, ASG suggested to the Secretary General to make effort to include CGWB in 7th.Pay Commission deliberations and also suggested to include Com.  V.B.Rajagopal, Superintendent, CGWB, KR, Trivendrum replacing Shri T.C.Mathur, as he has become Consultant in CGWB after his retirement.  Com. Nityanand, Chief Auditor explained that the MACP & DPC in respect of Scientific wing is done in time, whereas the similar cases of Engineering & Ministerial Wing are not convening in time.  A letter in this regard is to be prepared and submitted to the Authorities.

            Com. R.K.Pandey, Vice-President pointed out that one Consolidated proposal of Watch & Ward Duty for Divisional Office and Field Formations of Div.V, Ranchi  was sent to CHQ for according administrative approval but pending till today.  The Secretary General advised to re-submit the proposal after proper bifurcation.  He has also informed that the decision taken in the Office Council for not to engage the Technical Operator (Drilling) in Watch & Ward duty in CGWB. An Order already been issued by the CHQ in this connection and will be persuaded vigorously for implementation with time frame.

            Com N.Kumar, Member, Office Council(JCM) explained that no essential drilling materials like all sizes of pipe, Bits, hammer, drill rods, mud and Pea-gravel and Tent etc., are available in divisional stores, due to non procurement of these items, Divisional offices are facing much difficulty in achieving the prescribed/stipulated target.  Instead of MS pipe, Div.IV is using PVC pipe on casing on rock formation, this is not sustainable and it may collapse at any time.  During assembly in rotary rigs, the minimum 8” or 10” MS pipes is to be used, but now most of the Divisions are using only 6” MS pipe, where there will be no scope for pump test, if no proper pump test, zone test, then the yield from the tube well become questionable.  So far, the Central Ground Water Board employees has been participated in many strikes, dharna and rally etc., now the time has  come to fight for saving our own Department, for which the Strike is inevitable.  The Central Ground Water Board is spending more funds on Drawing competition and making wall calendars and table calendars etc., Moreover, during the drawing competition more Scientists of Regional Offices are involving months together, keeping aside their nature of duty and the main purpose of appointing Scientists in CGWB are getting deviated.  Instead of allotting funds to drawing competition, CGWB can be procured the essential materials to ensure the smooth functioning of Divisional offices without any hindrance.

            He also pointed out the disparity in submission of undertaking and performing Watch & Ward duty among Technical Operator(D),  Compressor Operator and Black Smith, but at the time of promotion to the post of ADCM, they are being denied promotion at same station.  He requested house to take suitable action to remove the disparity in submitting undertaking & performing Watch & Ward duty immediately.  Com President informed this has happened due to merger of TO(D) & ADCM posts.  The President advised Secretary General to approach the Director (Admn) to fix up the date of Office Council Meeting so that the agenda items will be submitted to authority well in advance. 

Com. K.S.Madhusudhan, SG, declared to conduct the 3rd CEC meeting scheduled to be held during the 1st Week of March 2013.  The exact date and place will be decided and intimated soon.

The meeting was ended with vote of thanks to Chair.

CIRCULAR NO. 10                                                                                            DATED – 29.11.2013

GET READY FOR STRIKE

CONFEDERATION NATIONAL SECRETARIAT DECIDES TO ORGANIZE PHASED AGITATIONAL PROGRAMMES CULMINATING IN STRIKE

NO COMPROMISE ON THE TERMS OF REFERENCE OF 7th CPC SUBMITTED BY THE STAFF SIDE


1.         The National Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers met at New Delhi on 28.11.2013 and reviewed the situation arising out of the Government’s announcement of Seventh Central Pay Commission and the subsequent developments thereon.

2.         Even though Government has announced constitution of 7th Central Pay Commission, the appointment is yet to take place. In the meanwhile one round of discussion was held with Secretary, DOP&T on terms of reference. Subsequently, the staff side, JCM National Council has submitted a unanimous proposal on the items to be included in the terms of reference of the 7th CPC, which includes (i) date of effect as 01.01.2014 (2) merger of DA with pay (3) grant of interim relief (4) inclusion of GDS under the ambit of 7th CPC (5) statutory pension for those entered into service on or after 01.01.2004 (6) settlement of anomalies of 6th CPC (7) cashless/hassle-free medicare facilities etc.

Government while announcing the 7th CPC has made it clear that the date of effect will be 01.01.2016. Further nothing has been mentioned about DA merger and interim relief. Regarding GDS the declared stand of the Government is that GDS are not civil servants and in the past also every time when CPC is appointed, the Government refused to include them in the Pay commission. Last time also inspite of the strong protest and agitational programmes conducted by NFPE and Postal JCA, the Government has appointed a bureaucratic committee. Regarding statutory pension to those who entered into service on or after 01.01.2004, the Government’s stand is well known and it may refuse to include this item also in the terms of reference.

This being the position, our past experience shows that unless and until the demands raised in the staff side proposal submitted to Government on terms of reference of the CPC is backed by serious agitational programmes, rallying the entire Central Government Employees and create compulsion on the Government to accept our justified stand, there is every possibility of Government rejecting the above proposal.

Further all of us are aware that the political situation in the country is gradually getting in election mode. This is bringing forth before the working class movement a crucial task of front-loading our class issues in the ensuring political battle. We have to keep in mind that the corporate class and corporate controlled media has started making effort for relegating the working class issues and the economic policy related issues in particular to the background. It is our duty to bring the demands of the working class to the fore-front and conduct intensive campaign against those policies and also against those who are supporting the neo-liberal globalization policies. Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers being the part and parcel of the mainstream of the working class of our country has got an added responsibility to rally the entire Central Government Employees in the joint struggle against the anti-people and anti-worker policies of the Government which shall ultimately lead to a change in the political equation ensuring implementation of pro-people, pro-worker alternative policy.

Taking into Consideration all the above facts and circumstances, the National Secretariat of the Confederation of Central Government Employees & Workers met at new Delhi on 28.11.2013 took a unanimous decision to go for strike if the Government refuse to accept the staff side proposal on terms of reference. Confederation further decided to organize series of phased programme of action and campaign from now onwards so that the employees will be ready to go for strike on short notice.

It is further decided that Confederation shall not go for any compromise on the demands raised in the proposal submitted by the JCM Staff side on terms of reference of 7th CPC.

3.      The following are the important decision of the National Secretariat.

2.      The modification made in the Confederation Charter of Demands regarding date of effect of the 7th CPC (i.e. from 01.01.2011 to 01.01.2014) is approved as it was necessitated for arriving at unanimity among the staff side on term of reference which will strengthen further the unity of all Central Government organizations including Railways and Defence.

3.      Approved the modified Charter of Demands of the Confederation which includes the terms of reference submitted by the Staff side to the Government (copy enclosed Annexure – I)

4.      Decided to conduct the following phased programme of campaign and agitational programmes.

All India/State Leaders of the affiliated organizations shall under-take extensive tour as part of campaign programme.
